This website's Wild Bee Guide and its attendant opening photography exhibit were generously supported by the New York State Environmental Protection Fund. Susan Antenen, Director of Rockefeller State Park Preserve of New York, commissioned the project. Photographs and guide text are by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman. An exhibit of their work, titled Wild Bees of New York, is now on a national tour. 


The Bruce Museum of Arts and Science in Greenwich, CT, featured a photographic exhibit of  Sharp & Eatman's New York wild bee project, from April 14, 2017 through November 11, 2017.   From there, Wild Bees continued on a national tour.  It has been exhibited at the Irving Arts Center Dupree Gallery of Irving, Texas; the Pritzlaff Conservation Center Gallery of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden; The Houston Museum of Natural Science; and The International Museum of Art and Science.
